Please arrive 15 minutes early if able and be ready to go rafting!


A waiver must be signed by every person who is rafting, kayaking or tubing. This will be part of your check-in process.

Any person under the age of 18 years, not accompanied by his/her parent/guardian must have a waiver filled out and turned in upon check-in.

Overnight Accommodations

If you haven’t already, we offer several different overnight accommodations, some of which can be booked last minute!

We offer sites for tent camping and bunk houses for a slightly more “glamping” feels. Each site comes with a fire pit and trash/redemption disposal.

Furthermore, next door to us is the Dead River Lodge which boasts everything from bunk style rooms to several private rooms. The Lodge is subject to availability.

There is no smoking allowed inside any building.


Pets are only allowed in Dead River Lodge.

We apologize but due to the large number of guests, no pets are allowed on the property including inside bunkhouses and campground.

What to wear

Any material that wicks away moisture such as a bathing suit, nylon, fleece or polypropylene. Most athletic wear is great to wear on the river! No cotton or jeans!

Footwear: sandals with heel straps or old sneakers (anything that will stay on your feet!). No flip-flops. We offer a variety of water shoes for sale in our camp store, along with wetsuit booties for rent!

Check out: 10:00 AM or before you check-in for your rafting trip!

Please make sure you have thoroughly checked for all your belongings before checking out; there is NO re-entrance after 10:00AM to the Dead River Lodge. Re-entering will result in the group leader’s credit card being charged an additional night’s stay.
